I read and watch movies on my iPhone, but a movie has to be a one
person experience. If more than one of us want to watch, it has to be
a bigger screen. Here's hoping the iPad fils that niche.

But since bandwidth is limited over here, renting movies or TV shows
via iTunes or any other download service is not viable, so I have to
rip DVDs using Handbrake and then put them on my iPhone. This works
perfectly, but it doesn't mean that I have to plan to watch a movie -
I can't just stick a DVD in the slot and play it.

I would love it if the iPad had the ability to share a DVD over
wireless as the MacBook Air does, but I think it unlikely.
